    And then it was summer, but really, like steaming hot! For the past 2 weekends (that would be all of June, till now) we have been going to the beach at Tombrouk full days. It’s the only place where we can get a bit a fresh air, and a regular cool-off in the sea.

    We’ve also been looking for houses, without results so far. But we remain hopeful. The area around Iraklio has become relatively expensive. We might want to move further away, which poses a problem as the work is in Iraklio, simple as that. It’s possible to find jobs in other areas, but it is a lot more difficult, with our Greek still not up to level.

    Speaking of which, I didn’t start the second semester of my Greek language classes as I was in the hospital then. But I got a phone call from the teacher, Maria, while I was there. I really appreciated that. Anyway, they changed the hours, so that even if I hadn’t had that little problem with the heart, it would have been extremely difficult for me to attend all classes. So we looked for alternatives and we found them. Sort of. There is an organization called N.E.L.E. which gives free Greek language classes (and some other tuition) to foreigners, to enable a fast integration and a better chance on the employment market. Both Yvonne and I enrolled. The teacher’s name is Kalia and she is a really nice person. But totally disorganized. No methodology. No structure. No programme. She drives me crazy. I dropped out after 8 or 9 weeks. And after a number of arguments with her about grammatical constructs… you know me. Yvonne is still attending and has a great time there. She goes twice a week on Tuesday and Friday. Today is Tuesday, that’s why I can use her computer to enter this, while my laptop cools off.

    Did I say it was steaming hot today?
